Penne Vegetable Medley

Chef's Corner

Because only the best commercial ovens keep your kitchens running like they need to.

Penne Vegetable Medley

Welcome to the first edition of ACP’s Chef’s Corner!

The MXP combines 3,000 watts of infra red energy, 2,200 watts of microwave and 2,000 watts of convection energy to give you amazing results in a fraction of the time.  This combination of energy delivers more orders in less time for greater return on investment. It is equipped with a catalytic converter which oxidizes smoke and odors from the oven cavity and the room, eliminating the need for a vent hood.

Our first recipe is a quick, light dish. The Penne Vegetable Medley has a mild flavor profile.   We recommend serving this as a hot menu item, but it can also be served cold without losing any of the interesting and pleasing flavor profile.  If your customers like meat with their pasta, personalize it by adding chicken, beef strips or any number of other options.   This recipe is great for providing a healthier menu option at restaurants or cafes.
